Designing Your Garden: Defining Structure
The image below shows how you can take a bubble (functional) diagram then transform them into garden structure studies. I encourage you to explore several options. Originally I only created the two garden structure studies for bubble diagram #2, then realized I needed to stretch myself, so created a couple more options for bubble diagram #1. My second set felt more dynamic.
My next post will show how I create a preliminary design from one of these studies.
